Set sometime in the late Muromachi period, Naomitsu Hatakeyama is the second son of the distinguished Hatakeyama family. His lifelong friend and love interest are both Ako-hime. When Ako-hime's father dies, Yoshimasa Ashikaga elicits a decree that will forever change their fates. Soon afterwards, Naomitsu is betrayed by his very own brother, Nobutsuna Hatakeyama, who plans to forcibly take Aho-hime for himself. Naomitsu loves Ako-hime so much that he is ready to give up his life and flee into the mountains with Ako-hime. While travelling through the mountains, Naoitsu soon faces another betrayal, this time from retainer Sakuramaru, a man Naomitsu once saved from death and took care of like a brother. Naomitsu Hatakeyama then comes back as Tajomaru. Edit Translation

The direction of Hiroyuki Nakano is solid and the film is full of beautiful images. Performances are good, the musical score is a strange mix of the traditional with occasional rock songs, which works very well most of the time. The movie is wonderfully breathless and full of hyperbole. The story of TAJOMARU: AVENGING BLADE unfolds at a leisurely pace, but rewards patient viewers with enough moving drama along with some exciting battle action. While hardly epic in scale, it does not need hundreds of extras or many CGI effects to entertain.
